Banner Engineering Sensor Video

Banner Engineering explains photoelectric sensors in a Control Engineering tutorial video.

Control Engineering is now showing two proximity sensor tutorial videos . One video is on photoelectric and fixed-frame sensors, and the other about inductive and capacitive sensors.

Learn the basics of these sensor technologies, the range of sensing elements, various applications, and a little about how the technologies work. Run time for each is under 10 minutes per video, and each also is available on YouTube.

Photoelectric and Fixed-frame Sensors Video from Control Engineering

Although each of the four companies interviewed have much broader product lines, Mark T. Hoske, Control Engineering editor in chief, focuses the Banner Engineering discussion onphotoelectric sensors and talks to Balluff about fixed-frameproximity sensors. In that video, Aaron Biggar, Banner Engineering senior applications engineer, shows the wide variety of World-Beam photoelectric proximity sensors. Tom Rosenberg, Balluff director of marketing, demonstrates Self-Contained Thru-Beam Balluff UltraFrame Sensors, including how they can be integrated into a motion control application.

In a second tutorial video, Hoske talks to Turck about inductive proximity sensors and to Carlo Gavazzi about capacitive proximity sensors.

Jon Bach, Carlo Gavazzi vice president marketing, explains thefunctions of the company's Tripleshield Capacitive Sensors, and various applications for those sensors.John Murphy, Turck sensor product manager, reviews Turck uprox anduprox+ advanced inductive sensors.

Both videos, taken at the Design & Manufacturing Midwest show, are now available for viewing in the CETV area of the Control Engineering website , along with a variety of other brief automation, control, and instrumentation videos.

"Editors get to see a lot of great information, electronic and print, about a lot of useful and fun technologies, but there's nothing like being there. With these proximity sensing tutorials, I tried to bring viewers closer to the conversation, asking questions that they might ask about these proximity sensing technologies."

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
